University Court Break and Closing Information

Break Periods

University Court Apartments remain open during Thanksgiving, Semester, and Spring Breaks.  During these break periods, if you plan to remain in your apartment, you will need to complete an online form indicating that you are remaining on campus, and also note your vehicle information.  Complete the form below.

End of Academic Year Closing

The University Court Apartments Contract ends at 4:00 pm on Friday, May 6, 2022. 
The Dining Centers will be consolidated to Thomas Dining on Friday, May 6, 2022. Thomas Dining will close at 6 p.m.

All students must schedule a checkout date and time with a housing staff member before leaving for Summer Break.
Students will be provided with two types of checkout options when leaving: Office Checkout or Express Checkout.

Office Checkout:  Students who choose this option will checkout by coming to the University Court office during checkout hours (M-F between 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). A staff member will then check students out and make them aware of possible fines or damages. All belongings must be removed from your apartment BEFORE you come to the office to check out. You are also responsible for cleaning your apartment before you leave. To request this option, students will need to fill out the form found here.

Express Checkout: Students who want the flexibility to check out after hours or do not want to wait for a staff member to view their apartment can choose this option by filling out the form found here. Please be aware that choosing this option means you will waive the ability to discuss damages with a staff member. All belongings must be out by 4:00 PM on Friday, May 6 unless you have received approval from University Court staff. If you choose this option, you must come to the U Court Office to receive a key envelope before you check out. You will then complete the checklist on the envelope, put all keys inside, and drop the envelope off at either the U. Court front desk or key drop box at the U. Court door. You are also responsible for cleaning your apartment before you leave.

Residents are required to inform housing staff which checkout process they would like to participate in. Failure to check out properly results in a $100 improper check-out charge and a potential $60+ lock and mailbox re-core charge.  Please check your EIU email frequently for all updates regarding check-out procedures.
